On and Off The Needles

On the needles is this scarf for me.  
Lion Brand Homespun Mixed Berries is the perfect color for my favorite jacket.
Quick, easy, knit every row. 25 stitches on size 11 needles.

Finished is the hat from last week using up the last bits of wool yarn.
I have worn it several times already, it's perfect for that quick trip to the chicken house. 
I was going to toss any leftover wool but I made 2 dryers balls instead.

Finished last night was this Scarf Hood.
I think a teen girl will love this.
Personally, I think once it is sewn for the hood, the scarf is too short.
But I'm not a teen girl so what do I know.

So with these 2 finishes, I am at 3 finishes for Sticks 'n Strings 2013.

JoAnn's was having a great yarn sale so I stayed away from the store.
But you can order on line and they did have free shipping.  wink, wink
I order 2 skeins of yarn to finish an afghan, yarn for 3 pair of socks (don't judge!) and
circular needles for 2 different projects.

This morning I even found this free vest pattern for Ernie's test vest.
He wants one made from alpaca yarn 
but I'm going to use fisherman's wool first to test for fit and his likes and dislikes.  

I'm linking up to Patchwork Times On The Needles

What a great idea for those dryer balls! I wonder if soaking them in some dilute fabric softener would help with static cling issues

All of your projects are great! I especially like the bear's hat - the color and the texture.

Love the scarf!

Your hat turned out so precious! I do like that Homespun yarn, but I crochet it rather than knit. I have wrestled with it when trying to knit but zoom along when using the hook.
You've been a busy gal, Ms. 3-projects-done!

You're getting so much done! Love your scarf and your hat. I really love the hat! The scarf hood is so much prettier in your colors than in the colors shown on the pattern.
